In January 2015, southern Malawi experienced devastating flooding that destroyed homes, washed away vital fertilisers and crops and took many lives.  Thanks to the generosity of Joshua’s  supporters, we have been able to provide emergency shelter, food and hygiene packs, replant crops and rebuild stronger more resilient homes for some of the  poorest and most vulnerable families.

It's now one year on and life in Malawi is getting harder by the day. The floods and subsequent drought meant a very weak harvest last year which has created huge food shortages -  the long term effects of which are being felt across the country.  The cost of repairing houses, planting new crops and buying fertilizer means there is very little money spare for school fees, health care and other household essentials.  Prices are soaring for essential items - maize flour for example has doubled in the last 6 months while fuel is now more expensive than in the UK.  So far the drought has continued and it is likely this year’s harvest will be weaker than last year.  The poorest and most vulnerable amongst people, orphans and vulnerable children, single mothers and elderly carers are struggling and need our help.

We urgently need funds to help support our communities. Can you help?

 Joshua already has projects on the ground to reach those most in need.  Our Community-Based Childcare Centres are feeding 1000+ children every day – a 40% rise in the last 12 months.  For most of these  children, this is the only meal they will have each day. Requests for secondary school sponsorship are also increasing as families have less money to pay for school fees and school resources.

The Help Malawi 2016 appeal  will be used to support Joshua projects on the ground that are faced with these challenges every single day.  The increased demand means that our projects are struggling to cope with the level of funding we have available and we desperately need to boost our basic income. Can you help boost our funds so that we can meet the growing needs of these vulnerable communities?  Any financial support you can give will be so gratefully received.

 More information about the impact of last year’s emergency appeal as well as the current situation in Malawi and Joshua’s projects are available on our website www.joshuainmalawi.org.uk

I am fortunate enough to be able to help these children in need. I was in Malawi in 2009 and the children were the reason why I am so greatful today. I am sending all my love to them. The unconditional love and faith they offered me changed me forever.
